After a long period of silence about the matter, former Team 10 members the Martinez Twins have spoken again about the nasty drama that went down between them and leader Jake Paul when they left the house, saying that they finally “forgive” him.

While recent years have seen YouTuber and former Disney channel star Jake Paul shift his content to focus on him as an individual, he made a name for himself as leader of YouTube creator house Team 10 back in 2017

The controversial YouTube group received an equal amount of adoring fans and frustrated onlookers, with his neighbors even attempting to file a class-action lawsuit against Jake after he leaked their address, with hordes of fans coming to wait outside the house for a glimpse of their idols.

What did Jake Paul do to the Martinez twins?

Two notable members of Team Ten were twin brothers Ivan and Emilio Martinez, brothers from Spain who were invited by Jake Paul to come and live with him in LA. They quickly amassed a huge degree of popularity, even participating in the viral “It’s Everyday Bro” music video with their own verse.

But things turned sour when they released a video detailing the reasons they had left behind Team 10, and Jake seemed to be the root of the issue.

They spoke about how when they came to the US they didn’t speak very good English, so other members would talk about them badly behind their back or laugh at them “every single day.” Jake Paul’s borderline violent pranks apparently became too much, so they left the Team 10 life behind.

At the time, Jake called the twins out for uploading a video about it instead of talking directly, calling them “immature” and saying they were just making videos about it to “get more views.” “Talk to me like a man in person,” he continued, “we can fix this.”

Are Jake Paul and the Martinez twins friends again?

After a few years of silence about the topic, on September 12 Ivan Martinez uploaded a series of images of him, his brother Emilio, and Jake Paul all together, that now has almost half a million likes. It is unclear as to when exactly these pictures were taken, but his caption speaks positively of the relationship between the three.

“You can’t go back and change the past,” he wrote, “but you can start where you are and change the ending. We forgive each other. Amigos.”

On Twitter, Emilio wrote “got off the phone with Jake. It was very awkward at the beginning but right away we both started laughing and had fun.” He continued by saying that “this trio gotta move on” and that they’ve “grown up.”

Jake reposted one of the pictures on his own story with the caption “los tres amigos” so clearly the sentiment is reciprocated. This proved to be surprising news for those who followed the crazy situation as it unfolded back in 2017.

It is unclear whether any future collaborations are in the works, but it seems many would be curious to see a throwback to bizarre Team 10 days.


Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
